Kansas makes it back to Final Four of Academic Bracket

Every year, InsideHigherEd.com creates its "Academic Bracket," in which teams are compared with their APR scores, a measure of the eligibility and retention of their student-athletes.

This year, Kansas makes it to the Final Four, only to lose to Belmont, the eventual Academic Bracket Champion. Last year, Kansas won the Academic Bracket championship AND made it to the actual national championship. In this era of big-time college sports, it's a pretty remarkable achievement by Coach Self and his staff to be able to achieve sustained excellence in both of these areas.

This year's bracket can be found here:

Sure, this bracket is kind of silly, and the APR system has its flaws. However, our continued success in the Academic Bracket deserves to be a point of pride for everyone in Jayhawk Nation. Because the fact is, for years now, every single player under Bill Self has either left with a degree, or in good academic standing while they pursue better opportunities for themselves at either other schools or as professionals.

Plus, we get to look down at pretty much every other school for not "doing things the right way." And that's always fun.

Rock Chalk!
